PaperTrey Ink was having their August Blog Hop tonight!   Yay. 

Unfortunately, I raced home from the office at 5:00 (CENTRAL TIME), home 5:45, got to work right away on my idea, finished my project with what I thought was plenty of time, 8:00 (CENTRAL TIME) ~ only to finally realize that the time zone for the post was EASTERN TIME!!! {BIG sigh}

Oh well, I’ll know better next time. I still wanted to post my project cuz I think my twin grandaughters are the cutest in the world! (certainly, I’m not biased!)

The Challenge for tonight was to make a project using CD cases…(big sigh again) and use at least one PTI product. Well, here’s my LATE submission. 😦

It’s a tissue box cover…originally started out as a holder for my Copic markers, but I couldn’t think of anything for the bottom!   Who knew that CD cases were an exact fit for a box of kleenex!   (If you put the cases together so that they open to the front, you can replace the photos whenever you wish.)

I’ve shown a picture of each side of the holder (once again, I’m NOT prejudiced in any way….but, they are the cutest, sweetest girls in the world!) Hailee & Jordynn ~ 5 years old!   (wow, this is their public debut!) 🙂


Recipe:  CD holders held together with sticky tape; Sentiments by PTI, Bitty Baby Blessings and Out on a Limb sentiments, stamped in Colorbox lipstick red and Mediterranean blue; Spellbinders Nestibilities tag dies, brads.
